New school start times instituted for 2019/20

It’s a done deal.

Yesterday the Webster Central School District officially announced that the proposed change in school start times was approved at the August 14 School Board meeting.

What that means is that beginning with the 2019/20 school year (NOT this school year), the secondary schools’ day will run from about 8:45 a.m. to 3:15 pm., and elementary schools from 7:45 a.m. to 2:10 p.m. (Depending on the school, that time might vary by 5 minutes or so.)

This from the district’s press release:

Throughout the past year, elementary and secondary work groups have been meeting to research the scientific evidence that supports this start time change for our students, along with the implications for our academic program, district transportation, childcare, athletics, and elementary activity period. Rest assured, teams will continue to meet throughout the 2018-19 school year as we communicate to you how this change will occur beginning with NEXT FALL’s 2019-20 school year.
